BOSTON'S BASKETBALL GENIUS!
MAY YOUR MEMORY BE ETERNAL!
I met Red when the Celtics practiced @ Hellenic College in Brookline, MA 1976-79.

I played basketball while in high school. What stands out the most about my coach was that he was loving and fair towards all of us. That's what stands out to me about Coach Auerbach. He loved all his players and understood their trials and circumstances, regardless of their skin color. I admire that a lot. (Acts 24:15)

For Red...



WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

My husband and I knew Red and his brother Zang. We went to games when we lived in Maryland. Red was a down to heart man. He is truly missed and his brother Zang

I have been a long-time Celtic fan. From the Larry Bird era with Robert Parish and Dennis Johnson and my man Danny Ainge. Mr. Auerbach put together a legend and basketball fans from around the world are forever greatful. Mr. Auerbach will be missed. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to his family in their time of sorrow. Death is devastating for us all. I hope that you may find comfort in Jesus' words at JOhn 5:28, "The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear my voice and come out". May you find comfort in the truth of God's Word, the Bible.

As a long time Celtic fan, your loss is felt by myself and millions of others. Even though I grew up in Pennsylvania I was always a Celtic fan. As a young teenager of 15 I became very sick. My parents thought that I was going to die. I had a decease called Selective IGM Deficiency. I was very sick when his team won the 1969 championship. I told my Mother to get me up late that night to watch the final game. When the Celts won it gave me the strength to over come. I believed it they could come back and make it, so could I. I recovered and the next year upon returning to High School I gave a report in English Class of what that team meant to me. Mr Auerbach will always be in my heart.

Your life's activities, professionalism and love for basketball are appreciated. The game of basketball has evolved due to your efforts and passion. Today I have a daughter, Sarita playing college ball in Kansas, this would not have happened without you and others promoting the game.
The Celtics organization and all us fans will miss you. Our prayers are with your family.
